Q. What is succession?A. Maori land is owned by either one owner, or by several owners. In some cases there are hundreds of owners for one block or title.

Succession Application Step/Process
‘Succeeding to maori land shares / interests in Māori Land Through the Māori Land Court.

Step/Process 1
Before interests in MāoriLand can be passed from a deceased person to their successor/s, a succession application must be made to the Māori Land Court. An application can be lodged at any MLC registry, but is sent to the registry that covers the area where the land interests are located. This registry is responsible for processing the application. The applicant completes a succession application form and supplies supporting documentation, such as a death certificate for the person whose interests they are succeeding to, as well as whakapapa links to that person and the block of land. Court staff check that the application is completed in full and that the supporting documentation and fee are included.

Step/Process 2
Court staff then search the historical records held by the Court to see what interests the deceased person had in Māori Land and from where they were derived. Staff also check the whakapapa details attached to the application for consistency with the record, and then compile a report for the Judge in preparation for a hearing.

Step/Process 3
If all details are confirmed, then the application is notified in a monthly Court publication that advises all interested parties about the time and place of hearings, and the applications to be heard. The applicant and interested parties are notified of these details at least two weeks before a hearing.

Step/Process 4
The hearing is held at one of several centres within the areas covered by the seven registries. The purpose of the hearing is to confirm the report compiled by the Court staff; to receive evidence and comments from the applicant and other interested parties; and for the Court to make a decision on the case.

Step/Process 5
After the hearing, Court staff produce minutes as a record of proceedings, which are then sent to the applicant and all interested parties. A Court order, which records the Judge’s decision regarding the application, is subsequently sent to the applicant and, if necessary, to other interested parties.

Step/Process 6
If no rehearing or appeal is applied for within the time limits set for each, then the process is completed by entering the Court order on the Māori Land Information System (which updates details about blocks of Māori Land) and, where applicable, registering a copy of the order with the Land Registry Office. Actions required as a result of the Court order are forwarded to relevant parties, such as the Māori Trustee, who may hold funds on behalf of the deceased person.

If you think a deceased family member may have maori land interests, feel free to visit or contact your nearest Maori Land Court to find out.
